Total hilarity. Audience involvement in that perfect pocket, keeping flow fresh and loose. The performances are out of this world. So much fun, with just the perfect amount of pain. 5 bags of popcorn. Ten out of ten. ... full review

A touching and funny rumination on death, sex, violence, and mourning of loved ones mediated by two eccentric characters gently carrying you through the range of emotions on those topics. Be prepared to have a respectful sense of humor about death and loss. Audience participation is highly encouraged. ... full review

There is almost more joie de vivre in The Living Room than one stage can contain. Absurd. Macabre. Fiesty. Sexy. Silly. Poignant. Adult and Childish. Sly. Hillarious. This show made me laugh and made me cry - then I stopped. Those in the first three rows will get wet.... full review
LINDSAY BEAMISH certified reviewer June 29, 2019
I absolutely loved it. Gemma and Amrita were masterful onstage, seamlessly weaving between structure and improvisation and absurdity and heartbreak. The show was both broad and profoundly nuanced at once. I would like to see it multiple times to see how the work changes each night depending on the audience interaction and contribution. ... full review

The Living Room is one of my favorite shows. Amrita and Gemma are so surprisingly silly in this piece, and they constantly look to play with the audience. This show stands out among clown shows because it not only makes you laugh a lot but also makes you deal with more profound emotions, and you share these emotions with everyone, including the performers. ... full review

A clown show full of heart. Beautifully performed by two masterful idiots. I laughed, I cried. Quietly poignant moments are made even more potent by the supreme idiocy that follows. Separately, Amrita and Gemma are wonderful performers. Together, something magical happens. Don’t miss this unique theatre-going experience!... full review

I laughed, I cried, I loudly encouraged questionable behavior... what a ride! The Living Room is a joyful and heartfelt clown show about two accountants of death. Gemma and Amrita are brilliant, energizing, and so wonderfully silly onstage. The audience is an integral part of the show, which I liked. As performers, Amrita and Gemma connect with the audience to build an space of beauty and intense emotion, all within the absurdity of the Living Room. I will definitely see this show again!... full review
SATI KAUR certified reviewer June 13, 2019
The Living Room is not just a play, it's an experience! Unlike anything I've ever watched before. I could have never imagined that absurdist humor could be used in a way to elicit such a strong emotional response. The show unfolds before your eyes with your participation in it, making no two shows the same. This makes the Living Room a living story that reflects upon mortality. You'll laugh, you might even cry, I sure did. I left feeling that something transformative had transpired and the strangers in the room at the end didn't feel like strangers anymore. ... full review

What a beautiful piece to coax a range of emotions out of you that you are rarely given the space to express - especially in such a public space. This show is hilarious, immersive, and healing. ... full review

A really excellent bit of clowning that features broad physical comedy, acerbic audience banter, and precise character work. They manage to deftly weave in some real pathos and vulnerability as well. The audience is presented with a bawdy romp, which turns out to be a real (yet mostly comical) exploration of loss. At what moment is someone truly gone and where does a fish go when it dies? These questions and more will not be answered but you will laugh loudly through misty eyes. I hear the show is going to the Edinburgh Fringe and the performers have set up a Go Fund Me. Go fund them! ... full review
